Toronto Port Authority is making it easier to crack “I’m on a boat” jokes with its Sail-In Cinema events

Finally, movies for the sailing community 

The Toronto Port Authority is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and to give us all a reason to think the TPA is awesome, they will be hosting Sail-In Cinema—North America’s first ever “floating movie event”—from August 18 to 20 in the harbour at Sugar Beach. The TPA will screen one movie every night at 9 p.m. on a 28-foot two-sided screen, so guests can watch in boats or on solid land. The TPA is accepting requests for water-themed movies until July 22 (with the winning submission scoring two tickets to anywhere in North America, courtesy of Air Canada). Since most of the movies we could think of involving water are about how it’s a cold and unforgiving place —Jaws, Open Water, The Perfect Storm, Waterworld—we look forward to seeing how the TPA will spin this as kid-friendly without having to show The Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo.
